A poll will be set up after 6 nominations.

Thanks for your nomination Jazzy. This thread is for the September theme. Would you still like to keep your nomination or use it for October?

Jazzy Lemon (jazzylemon) | 232 comments If i could learn to READ it would be better. :) Okay I'll save that for October and for September, outdoor sports (tennis, volleyball), barbecues on the beach, swimming in the sea or ocean, and trying to hang on to the last part of summer before it's too cold, football matches (that's soccer to the americans) at night under the stadium lights, beers, sticky outdoor pub tables, friends, and and books books books.

Gretchen | 8 comments My nomination is life in countryside. Think apple orchards, running around as a kid, baking with the family, sentimentality and nostalgia as summer comes to a close, and enjoying life's simplicity. For example My Ántonia or Little House on the Prairie.

Jazzy Lemon (jazzylemon) | 232 comments Do you mean the USA countryside? Or the countryside of other countries as well, which might be somewhat different than you have described.

Hillwalking, hiking, watercolour painting outdoors, examining flowers, foraging, sheep, castles and abbeys, woods, the cliffs, lighthouses, ships, and the sea perhaps in the UK.
Books like How Green Was My Valley, Thrush Green, Wuthering Heights, The Secret Garden, etc.

Jazzy Lemon (jazzylemon) | 232 comments Actually we both have nominated themes of late summer or end of the summer, which would be a good idea that we could adjust to fit anywhere in the world.

Kathy Hale (kahale) | 24 comments My theme is school which could include about being in school, a book about school, education, or set in a school setting
